It may seem that crafting a career in regenerative agriculture as a beginning agrarian is mostly about learning the hands-on skills: fixing water lines, building fences, irrigation, etc. Many of us learn in the third or fourth year of working in this industry that when we start to think about what’s next, it’s the skills that aren’t often talked about that come to challenge us the most: self-advocacy, storytelling, decision-making, resourcefulness, putting theory to practice on our own, entrepreneurship, mental wellness, fostering strong relationships.
Quivira Coalition’s New Agrarian Program is delighted to invite you to The New Agrarian Toolkit: A Webinar Series to Dig Deep and Level Up. Inspired by beginning agrarian input and years of conversations with folks like you, we’ve designed this webinar series for our program alumni as well as any beginning agrarians seeking community in diving deeper into these topics. Bring your stories, your hard questions, and maybe dinner if you’re catching us right after work. We’ll see you there!
April 12: Telling Your Story with Alexis Bonogofsky
As the next generation of young agrarians, we spend a lot of time taking in content. We learn from others in-person, we read their stories, follow them on Instagram, listen to them on podcasts, watch their videos. Have you ever thought of your own story as being meaningful in this media landscape? Probably not. We tend to feel like our own stories are too small or they feel like “special cases” because they weren’t linear and perfect. Or maybe we just don’t know how to go about it.
In this webinar, Alexis Bonogofsky will empower you to share your story, no matter how big, small, weird, or normal. Using social media, creative writing, podcasts, videos, etc. you can create a platform that not only builds your professional image for future career opportunities, but you will hone important life skills and maybe even help to inspire others and change narratives.
